Here’s what people say about Presence and Leanne Wyvill:


“Leanne, thank you for a brilliant presentation.  I am positive that every attendee gained a new insight and thinking around their values.”
– Alison McGrath, Partner, McGrath HR

“We engaged Leanne to assist us in a complex community engagement exercise.  It was difficult and sensitive undertaking that required crafting a vast range of bespoke personal responses to an organised letter writing campaign.  Leanne’s attention to detail coupled with an honest and engaging writing style proved an essential element to assist us in regaining a degree of community trust.  Leanne’s commitment to the task was impressive.” – Alan Egan, Director, Property & Facilities Division, The University of Queensland

“Leanne Wyvill has worked closely with the Impact Innovation Group and plays a crucial role in the implementation of the state wide Innovate Queensland program funded by the State Government. Professionalism is an understatement, as Leanne is continuously on top of the complex communication requirements of this program.” – Brian Ruddle, Managing Director, Impact Innovation Group

“Through participation in one of her workshops, I found Leanne to be an excellent presenter with a firm knowledge of the content. She is detail-orientated, and used multiple methods in presenting to the participants to ensure that we were all able to grasp the content of the workshop. The day was planned with precision and went off without a hitch. I have no hesitation in recommending Leanne’s workshops to others, and would attend more workshops myself in the future.” – Gemma Hill, Medical Records Administrator, Princess Alexandra Hospital

“I wanted to say a huge thank you for the professional development workshop at the Metro Hotel last week. I really enjoyed the whole session and have come away with plenty of new and refreshed ideas. Your presentation was completely engaging from start to finish and I will not hesitate to recommend this training to my colleagues. Thank you again for the opportunity to take part.” – Rachel Vickary, Marketing Manager, Asset Management Services, Knight Frank Australia

“I am writing to express my gratitude for inviting me to attend Wednesday’s workshop. While I consider myself a confident writer it was beneficial to receive your experienced feedback and increase my confidence by learning and enhancing my processes. The format of the session provided a relaxed environment where all participants interacted and shared ideas and experiences. Your skill as a communicator and ability to impart your knowledge to attendees is, in my opinion, excellent value for money and a positive investment in both my personal and professional skill set.” – Andrew Spark, freelance advertising, marketing + design consultant

“I had the good fortune to engage Leanne to provide two days training to a group of community workers specialising in the youth homelessness sector. Leanne took the time to research the services involved and was able to gain a good sense of her target audience. The focus was on public speaking and presentations; specifically, how to best pitch the same presentation on youth homelessness to a range of stakeholders.
The group was well engaged in a series of informative, practical and challenging tasks throughout the two days and came away with a variety of outcomes, most notably a better understanding of how they could work together as a team and with more confidence in being able to represent their organisations.
Midway through the second day Leanne was posed with a spontaneous challenge to facilitate an unplanned discussion. She rose to this challenge admirably and seamlessly. Her expertise in communication was more than evident and she was able to bring about some inspiring ideas for the group to take away.
Leanne was easy to work with, generous in her time and flexible with her delivery. I’m very grateful to her for the results achieved and would have no hesitation in recommending her.” – Nicola Hensler, Community Services Management Consultant, Counsellor & Psychotherapist, Coastal Counselling

“Leanne is one of the few people who really knows what we should be doing when it comes to business writing and getting emails right. She teaches in such a clear and easy to understand, fun way that it doesn’t feel laborious to learn the rules and she gives the delegates confidence to apply them. Thank you Leanne!”  – Judeth Wilson, Founder, Upfront Communications

“Engaging Leanne was a worthwhile investment for my fledgling business. I look forward to working with her to help push my company to its full potential. Leanne has expert knowledge, is easy to engage with and really understands where to get the most value out of your communications and marketing opportunities.”Lindsay Hunt, Jarvis Hunt Consultancy

“From our first meeting, Leanne gained my trust and confidence with her hands-on approach and time-tested wisdom in organising corporate events. On the day itself, everything ran like clockwork. I know from experience that events only look this good and run this smoothly with a lot of hard work and attention to detail.”James Alderton, Bamboo Bridge
